Well, shit. The 690 started making some NASTY noises today. About 90% sure that it's an issue with the cam chain tensioner. I would tear into it, but I'm buried in work right now. Guess I will have to do the unthinkable and actually take it to a *gasp* shop.



I WILL have it sorted before the trip (which is why I am taking it to a shop). The worst part is that means that I'll be commuting in my stupid truck for now. :|

Knew the 950's are prone to that, didn't realize the 690's had it too. What year is it?

I'd like to mention that this post required me to browse bear magazine pics at work on a large screen-I started laughing out loud and got walked in on due to the noise. Try explaining why you're sharing this pic with a bunch of motorcycle guys you met on the internet...yeah doesn't really work!

2010. I'll have it sorted out in time. I hope. Worst case, I can truck my dirt bike down. I would much rather ride down, though.

Seems like a cheap and easy fix shouldn't take you but an hour tops. You are going after market right? Seems to be a number of good aftermarket fixes for this. It still drives me crazy that KTM can't seem to get this.

Fwiw, I have an aftermarket (Trail Tricks) cam tensioner in my 450, and a "new and improved" one in my BMW. I guess cam chain tensioners be hard to make yo.

Good to see the boys behavin' now. Stoke pretty much eliminated my appetite for breakfast this morning. Thanks man. . (Off that thing) Geez, Cathy is never going to speak to us again. Story's wife is going to have us committed.

More beer and bikes.

The pic is likely what prompted the drinking.

I liked Stoke much better when he was posting these fake pictures rather than his current partner.
